well we have survived our first week! thalia is doing very well and already developing into quite a character. usually she just eats, sleeps, and poops, but lately she has been staying awake for little bits of time just hanging out. chris' favorite thing to do is snuggle with her on his chest. usually she tucks her hands under her face but every once in a while she will put both arms out the side like she is giving him a big hug...it's super cute.
we survived her first bath and we have finally figured out how to get her to sleep in her bassinet! let's just say mom spent the first few nights on the couch. but she is usually sleeping for three to four hours at a time at night which is great! one thing i have learned (and know it sounds obvious but) is that every baby is different and certain accepted guidelines don't always work. but we are being safe and learning as we go.
and as you may have noticed, i added a slide show to the blog so you can sit for a second and watch as they scroll by. they aren't in any order - i am a new mom, give me a break! more to come as thalia continues to grow and amuse us.
hope you have a great day!
love c, c, and t
